The HTML <menu></menu> element defines a menu list. Though the common implementation of this element is usually the same as an unordered list, the <menu> style should be more compact. The only content of this list structure is the <li> element. As with other list structures, the closing </li> tag is optional in HTML (required in XHTML), as it is implied by the subsequent <li> or end </menu> tags.
